    Very nice indeed :biggrin:. No wonder you're proud of the Wilier.

    There seems to be a couple of problems though:-

    i) Chain not on large chain ring on Wilier
    ii) Valves not at bottom of wheels.

    Not my rules :becool:.

    (I wouldn't have noticed or cared but someone mentioned it elsewhere :biggrin:).

    Well spotted :biggrin:

    Nice bikes indeed. :biggrin:
    Your Zonda's really suit the bike. You just need my nice Shimano shoes to compliment the colour scheme of your bike now.:biggrin:
     
  6. Yes - yummy Zondas with neat blue tyres. Next time 'Motorola boy' (© bonj 2008 :becool: ) how about some blue bar tape?! (Flashing blue tape even:smile: )
     
  7. Nice bikes. My Wilier is being delivered on Wednesday - I can't wait!!!!:evil:

    Which model are you getting? What I like about mine is apart from the obvious stuff, full carbon frame etc, lovely Campy Groupset, is that I haven't seen another one around, oh, apart from last years White Horse Challenge, when a guy cycled up beside me and said "nice bike mate" when I looked to see what he was riding and to return the compliment, I noticed he was on a Wilier Mortirolo too!
     
  9. I'm getting the Iozard Pro. Campy Centaur gruppo and lovely Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels. I've had to buy 'her indoors' new flooring for the kitchen to pacify her

    Very nice too, you'll love it. I had to sign a contract stipulating that I wouldn't upgrade or buy another bike. I have already changed the OE
    wheels(Fulcrum R7's) for the Zondas it currently sits on...Oh well :evil:

    Like computer upgrades, in my experience, bike upgrades are easy to get past the other half. Unless I resprayed the frame a different colour she'd never notice!

    Actually, she's always been very good and let me get most of the things I need/want :evil:

    Love the Wilier Mortirolo. It's almost worth getting one just for the name.

    Strictly speaking I was able to slip the wheels in under the wire, as they were funded by birthday money.

    Yes, the name is another point, it just sounds great doesn't it?! I love the Italian connection too.

    There is also a touch of irony, those who know me will confirm that my climbing ability still has room for improvement.

    As you'll all know,The Mortirolo is a monster of a climb often included in the Giro, which I am unlikely to ever tackle, but we can all dream.

    Hopefully, <fingers cossed> is the Giant SCR in its final incarnation, complete with Campag Veloce Groupset and Fulcrum R7's. The fulcrums came off my Wilier, the Groupset from Merlin Cycles.[​IMG]
